Biography from Galerie St. Etienne:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Ernst Barlach, a predecessor to and contemporary of the German Expressionists, is difficult to classify.  In part because he worked chiefly in the mediums of printmaking and sculpture, he did not achieve the widespread renown of painters such as Kandinsky or Kirchner. Nevertheless, due to his multitude of talents, Barlach was an extremely influential artist.  Like many in the Expressionist movement, his was interested in creating "total artworks" that united disciplines to explore the human condition from various perspectives.  He was also a writer, who produced a number of print portfolios illustrating literary works by himself and others.  He was one of the artists who pioneered the woodcut revival that was to have a profound impact on his slightly younger Expressionist colleagues, as well as on Käthe Kollwitz.
